On Friday, July 28, 2017, the first regular meeting of the Gila Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees, since the approval of the University of New Mexico to take over the Cancer Center, took place in the hospital boardroom.

After public input, and some of the leadership reports, the Chief of Clinic Services Ray Goellner gave his report. He said his report in the packet was in error, because housekeeping had lost two people.

Yesterday, July 31, 2017 around 6:21 p.m. New Mexico State Police Officers responded to a crash on I-10 eastbound near mile post 85 involving a commercial motor vehicle and a 2005 Toyota pick-up.

On Saturday, July 29, 2017, Dave Schuhmann took these photos. "They are cleaning up outside and probably working hard on the inside," Schuhmann said.

After approving or tabling some of the consent agenda items at the Friday, July 28, 2017, meeting, the Gila Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees agreed to put off approval of the rest until all members had a chance to review them, during the recess between the regular meeting and the executive session.

In reports and updates, the Auxiliary report was in the members' packets, but the president of the Auxiliary, Frances Day, was not available to highlight items.

A new tradition had starting at the beginning of each Gila Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees meeting—a safety moment.

Chief Executive Officer Taffy Arias, at the July 28, 2017, regular board meeting, asked if anyone had a safety moment to present. When no one did, she said the safety moment she would offer "has a lot to do with patients' rights. So you, the patient, knows who your caregiver is, the title of that caregiver, whether an RN, an LPN, a lab tech or whoever. That assures you of that person's competencies."
